A new year is upon us and we will soon be seeing lots of lists of rankable items from 2017. We know how much people love to review these lists and we’re no different! If you’re looking for inspiration for your next Explain Everything project, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most viewed projects that have been shared on our platform.
So without further ado, here are some of the most viewed projects uploaded by our subscribers in 2017:
1. The Galaxy
Watch an elementary student take us on an adorable tour around the Milky Way Galaxy in Zoom In. Zooming effects help emphasize her destination all the way to North Elementary School in Noblesville, Indiana.
2. The Ocean
In Kinder Ocean Lesson, students get excited as their teacher engages them in the elements that belong in an ocean scene drawing. In this how-to project, the teacher uses simple lines, shapes, and the draw-fill tool to give the kids a model for their drawings.
3. The Weather
In Daily Moon and Weather, templates are created for daily journals. Students then take the templates and and add their personal observations like in this example. Templates are the perfect way to provide consistency and streamline projects.
4. The Eclipse
In anticipation of the solar eclipse that occurred in America this past August, Eclipse 2017 History gives an overview of these astronomical events. Using layering and animation techniques provides a nice eclipse simulation.
5. The Time
We don’t see as many analog clocks anymore, but knowing about the second and hour hands provides a visual understanding of what time is. In Learning to Tell and Write Time, annotations are used over clipart to help young viewers grasp the concept.
6. The Compounds
Did you ever want to know the difference between organic and inorganic substances? How about in Dutch? Since Explain Everything has subscribers worldwide, some of our international projects have lots of views as well. Clip-art, text, and annotations are used in Organische Stoffen (Organic Compounds) to explain the different substances.
7. The Movement
Watch as the ball bounces off of the cylinders that pop up in Movement 2. This project uses clipart and mix recording feature functions to make a stop motion video for your viewing pleasure.
8. The Rainbow
The Somewhere Over The Rainbow presentation combines text and photos to supplement the powerful story behind the famous song. You won’t forget where the song originated after viewing this project.
9. The Sow
In another international project, Berta la Cerda y el Tornado (Berta the Sow and the Tornado) uses imported illustrations and animations to show how Berta saved the day. Even if you don’t speak Spanish, you can still follow along to see how the story unfolds.
10. The Classroom
The Flipped Classroom provides information on a blended classroom approach. Clipart, annotations, and movement combine to explain why it might be time for traditional classrooms to embark on non-traditional measures.
We can’t wait to see what new and engaging projects are uploaded in 2018!
